Performance:   Sonics:
This disc sounds great.

As far as the performances go, Wells and his producer assembled a strong collection of songs from Sonny Boy Williamson, Junior Wells, Little Walter, Tampa Red and--get this--Tracy Chapman. Recorded in 1996, two years before his death, the 62 year old Wells' singing and blowing are in great form. To top that off, he is paired with several different slide guitar experts, including Sonny Landreth (sometime guitarist for John Hiatt's band), wunderkind Derek Trucks (son of the late Allman Brother Butch Trucks), Alvin "Youngblood" Hart and Corey Harris. If you like Chicago-style blues, you're going to love this CD.

Now, the sound. Pristine. Crystal clear. Great in 5.1 and in stereo. Everything you'd ever want--and expect--from SACD. The folks at Telarc did a great job here.

Performance:   Sonics:  
I agree with all the very positive reviews I read here. Junior Well is certainly one of the greats of blues and this disc puts his right in the room with you. I was astounded by the lineup of whos whos of blues who contributed. The sonics are right up there with the best and I have played it many times over and will continue to do so. Its so interesting, its simply a must have for any blues fans.

Performance:   Sonics:    
This SACD has it all.
One of the greats of blues accompanied by some very good players.
Excellent choice of songs.
A (relatively) new, top-notch master recording with amazingly warm and natural sound.
Probably one of the best multi-channel sounds ever produced.
If you would like to invite Junior Wells and his friend in your living room for a private performance, just buy this SACD.
